City of Lethbridge strengthening power connections across Oldman River

Crews will be busy around Lethbridge’s river valley and the Highway 3 bridge for the next few weeks as they work to install pipes under the Oldman River to house electrical cables.

The City of Lethbridge says an underground system is the simplest approach to stabilizing the power system across the river given restrictions on overhead lines over water.

That installation work should wrap up by the end of October, weather permitting.

Maintenance work will also be starting on Sep. 21st on the transmission line that runs from the north Lethbridge substation to the Coalbanks substation on the west side.

Helicopters are used to complete that work… which you may notice regularly during business hours. That maintenance work is scheduled to be complete by Nov. 5th.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
